Chile Officially Bans ‘Discrimination Against Mutants and Genetically Altered People’ (diariodevallarta.com)

No longer sci-fi speculation, the transhuman revolution is real; it’s here; it’s unfolding in real time. Man’s transformation into machine – or at least something not entirely human — will accelerate rapidly in the coming decades.

“Law No. 21.422 prohibits labor discrimination against mutations or alterations of genetic material, and in turn ‘prohibits demanding any certificate or test to verify that the worker does not have such alterations or mutations in his human genome.”

What do you think?

I had to research this myself bc it sounded so outlandish. But I found the actual Chilean Library of Congress website (bcn.cl) and saw the bill myself. This is very…odd.

What concerns me slightly more is the fact that I found no news articles about this. This sounds like something that should be newsworthy. I wonder how many countries are quietly passing bills like this without coverage.

This is in US law. Go to the US EEOC website and search “genetic information”

I feel like this is in relations to “designer babies” as there is more that we can select for in human dna than just hair and eye color. It’s still weird, but nowhere near as malicious as it sounds.

Nvm; if this is in relation to the GINA bill then it has nothing to do with future mutations or messing with DNA but rather a bill that protects people from insurance companies forcing anyone to submit their genes for approval or disapproval of benefits and coverage. Same as in the Chile bill. It’s been floating around for decades and was recently passed.
